MailMate should figure out the prefix on its own, but you can set it 
explicitly with the "Hidden Preference" namespaceResponse in 
~Library/ApplicationSupport/MailMate/Sources.plist file.  Documented on 
the Hidden Preferences page of the help and in this bug report: 

The format of that setting requires an understanding of how IMAP works 
with namespaces.

This attribute added to the relevant source stanza in Sources.plist MAY 
work for you:

namespaceResponse = '(("INBOX" "/")) NIL NIL';
